Debugging tips

TODO: developing with exaile

  • Setup pydev properly
    • Add glib, gtk,pygst,gst,gobject to builtins
    • Add correct source directory

GST issues

When tracking down GST issues, a useful thing to do is the following:

$ GST_DEBUG=3 ./exaile
$ GST_DEBUG="cat:5;cat2:3" .. etc.

$ GST_DEBUG="GST_STATES:4" ./exaile

GST_DEBUG_NO_COLOR=1 is good if you’re running exaile inside of pydev on eclipse.
